Dreißig kurzweilige Geschichten über den Hochadel der französische Gesellschaft vom berühmten französischen Romancier. Balzac enthüllt Lust und Leidenschaft, Laster und Leiden und auf brillanter Art das gesamte Spektrum der Skandale und der Verdorbenheit. Dabei klagt er auch die Scheinmoral und den Geiz und Gier des Adels an. Selten gab es erotische Geschichten, die gleichzeitig so mystisch, so frivol, so politisch und so gesellschaftskritisch sind wie Balzacs dreißig "Tolldreiste Geschichten". Faszination pur!

Honoré de Balzac was a French novelist and playwright. His magnum opus was a sequence of short stories and novels collectively entitled, La Comédie humaine, which presents a panorama of French life in the years after the 1815 fall of Napoleon. Due to his keen observation of detail and unfiltered representation of society, Balzac is regarded as one of the founders of realism in European literature. He is renowned for his multifaceted characters, who are complex, morally ambiguous and fully human. His writing influenced many subsequent novelists such as Marcel Proust, Émile Zola, Charles Dickens, Edgar Allan Poe, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Gustave Flaubert, Benito Pérez Galdós, Marie Corelli, Henry James, William Faulkner, Jack Kerouac, and Italo Calvino, and philosophers such as Friedrich Engels and Karl Marx. Many of Balzac's works have been made into or have inspired films, and they are a continuing source of inspiration for writers, filmmakers and critics.-­wikipedia
